Webbed Hand is a netlabel, offering over 250 complete albums free for download. Netlabel music is creative expression shared freely. The works released here are selected so you can experience them and be improved in some way for having done so. Download them, make copies for yourself, make copies for your friends. Add them to your podcast, radio show, video or short film (open permission for non-commercial use; if commercial, contact us).
Webbed Hand Records sees itself as a "flavor" label. There is a certain taste, a refined aesthetic, behind this operation, and albums released on WHR reflect that. In general, the works here are aimed at the ears of introverted mystics, dreamers, and lateral thinkers. We'd like the music here to serve as vehicles for the mind. Empowering and uplifting, rather than plaintive and devitalizing, this is sound to enchantment.
Webbed Hand Records is operated by and for artists who wish to bring their work to the public without a profit motive. Artists who make a higher priority of inspiring and entertaining. All of the artists here produce and promote their own work, and help spread the Webbed Hand reputation, to the best of their ability.
As this label was created and is run by a small group of visionaries, the work produced and selected for release, regardless of genre, is bound to end up trippy, loaded with subtlety and richness and no shortage of strangeness. Go to the release pages, download or stream a few things, and judge for yourself.

The bulk of Webbed Hand's catalog is many years old, dating to a time when fewer people had broadband internet, and thus it was the practice of netlabels to release work at lower bitrates. WHR does not possess the master files of any of these albums, and so cannot re-release higher bitrate versions. Instead of withdrawing these albums from the catalog, we're keeping them available for those who can appreciate them despite the lower bitrate.
